The Moose Cree First Nation Resource Protection – OPG partnership environment team is pleased to announce that we will be inviting 2 to 4 youth to go on a trip to the North French River and Lower Mattagami Complex during October 2019. Our environment team and the Wildlife Conservation Society Canada (WCSC) are working together on a Lake Sturgeon Project. This project tracks and monitors sturgeon using traditional knowledge and western science to better understand the impacts of hydroelectric dams on our rivers, creeks, and fish.
Site 1: Lower Mattagami Complex – a set of four dams are located 70 Kilometre northeast of Kapuskasing and about 150 kilometres upstream of Moose Factory.
Site 2: North French River – located approximately 70 kilometres north of the town Cochrane and flows into the Moose River, approximately 30 kilometres upstream from Moose Factory.
Wildlife Conservation Society Canada, also called WCSC, is a non-governmental conservation organization that conducts research and outreach to protect wildlife and nature in Canada.
Moose Cree First Nation youth from ages 15 – 25 are eligible. If you want to get involved and go on this trip, please contact us for additional information:
